    I need to install a pair of 100 x 215 lintels below DPC, that will be supported at one end by the existing brickwork and a new 4" wall coming up from the toe of the existing footing. I plan to install a padstone that sits half on the existing brickwork and half on the new 4" block wall.

    So I need to cut a hole in the wall that is 460 wide and 375 high.

    Can I just cut the hole, or do I need to muck about with props to support the wall above until brickwork goes back in?

    Cheers

    No need to prop, you may get one or two brick above falling at worst.
